696. My 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon Weekend Recap


“Seeing how many people flew down to Florida on a random weekend in February to cheer for total strangers… How cool is that?!”

I had the best weekend in Orlando at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon — running around Lake Eola with friends, attending the elite athlete press conference, hosting a Best Running Friends meetup, going on shakeout runs, and, of course, cheering for all of the runners during Saturday’s race. This is my recap from the weekend.
